General Information on the Legal Basis for Data Processing on this Website
Note on Data Transfer to the US and Other Third Countries
We may use tools provided by companies located in the US or other countries outside the EU. When these tools are active, your personal data may be transferred to and processed in these third countries. We would like to point out that these countries may not have a data protection level comparable to that of the EU. For example, US companies may be required to disclose personal data to security authorities without you being able to take legal action against it. Therefore, it cannot be ruled out that US authorities (e.g., intelligence agencies) may process, evaluate, and permanently store your data located on US servers for surveillance purposes. We have no influence over these processing activities.
Revocation of Your Consent to Data Processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke your consent at any time. An informal email notification to us is sufficient for this purpose. The legality of data processing carried out before the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
Right to Object to Data Collection in Special Cases and Direct Marketing (Art. 21 GDPR)
If data processing is carried out based on Art. 6(1)(e) or (f) GDPR, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation, including profiling based on these provisions. The respective
If your personal data is processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for the purpose of such advertising, including profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing. If you object, your personal data will no longer be used for direct marketing purposes (objection pursuant to Art. 21(2) GDPR).
Right to Lodge a Complaint with the Supervisory Authority
In the event of violations of the GDPR, data subjects have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the member state of their habitual residence, place of work, or the place of the alleged violation. The right to lodge a complaint is without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedies.
Right to Data Portability
You have the right to have data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfillment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another responsible party, this will only be done to the extent technically feasible.
Information, Correction, and Deletion
Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right to obtain free information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipients, and the purpose of data processing, as well as the right to correct or delete this data. For this purpose and for any further questions regarding personal data, you can contact us at any time.
Right to Restrict Processing
You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. You can contact us at any time for this purpose. The right to restrict processing exists in the following cases:
- If you contest the accuracy of your personal data stored by us, we usually need time to verify this. For the duration of the verification, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
- If the processing of your personal data was/is unlawful, you may request the restriction of data processing instead of erasure.
- If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it for the exercise, defense, or establishment of legal claims, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of deletion.
- If you have objected pursuant to Art. 21(1) GDPR, a balancing of your and our interests must be carried out. As long as it is not yet clear whose interests prevail, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, such data may only be processed - apart from being stored - with your consent or for the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the European Union or a member state.
